Dr Amy Jones graduated from Cardiff University in 2007. Now a South Wales trainee ST6, she completed a six-month rotation with Dr Victor Sim on the heart failure team earlier in her training, and therein developed an interest in the pre-operative assessment of older people, particularly in relation to TAVI.
She took time out of programme to pursue this. Herself and Dr Sim developed a pre-TAVI service in Cardiff, performing CGA and various functional and frailty measurement tools, and providing a Geriatrician’s opinion on the TAVI MDT. Her work has been showcased at the national Cardiac audit, and the BGS Cardiovascular section meeting in London.
Outside work she enjoys playing netball and being a Mum.
